Not that long ago and throughout history everyone knew how to homestead and live off the grid because there were no other options. Self reliance, bushcraft skills, and an innate understanding of the land was essential and still is in many places; from what certain clouds mean, to foraging, to navigating, to how to track game, to when optimal harvest times are. Their experiences comprise a rich history of survival skills that we can draw from.
It's easy to forget that nature provides everything. It's our grocery store, and our medicine chest. It supplies our clothing and shelter. If we are going to retain some level of independence it's imperative that we don't forget where we came from. The past is the future. People are turning back to nature and re-learning homesteading and wilderness skills.
Looking forward we can easily have it all. More simplicity, peace of mind, and freedom in our lives. Pair wilderness survival skills with modern technology, such as solar and wind energy, and we've never been more capable of effectively prepping and homesteading off the grid.
